The Tydeman Centre Open Morning - 26 April

The Tydeman Centre is a highly successful specialist mainstream provision,  established in September 1990, to cater for children with Speech, Language and Communication needs. Its programmes, quality and impact of teaching, support staff and well-managed  integration into the main school were praised by OFSTED (2015).

Parents/carers and interested professionals are welcome to visit—please telephone to arrange an appointment.  Or come along to our Open Morning and see us in action:

Wednesday, 26 April 2017 from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm


Entry Criteria
Children must have an Education, Health and Care Plan for one of the following:
a speech or language disorder;
a high-functioning autistic spectrum disorder;
significant specific learning difficulties of a dyslexic nature.

There should be no behavioural need.  
The expectation is that all of our students will follow a carefully-managed integration programme. All admissions are managed by the Local Authority. 
The provision is popular with parents and there are currently 107 pupils on roll, with between 17 and 20 children in each year group (Years 7 to 11) and 21 in Years 12 and 13.  Class sizes within the Centre typically range from 8 to 10 pupils.  Post-16 provision was introduced in September 2015.
